in the hearts and minds of america. >> we're talking about raising that threshold. if anyone has a problem with someone making $250,000 adjusted gross income, probably it's going to be $500,000 when we're all done. this is a very, very, very wealthy in our kendry, not the people of the middle class or struggling to be in the middle class or hoped to at one point attain a higher income. >> are you surprised at the demeanor of people at these town hall meetings? we haven't seen tape like this, events like this, in 20, 30, 40 years in this country. i mean, you've got to go back to the vietnam war to see this kind of public passion that's been out there. >> well, you know, i live in a walking town hall in my district. when i see people on the streets let me know what they feel. it's done with respect and mutual respect. i have tremendous respect for my constituency and they have for me. i think that's -- regardless of party. that's what's missing right now in this debate. it's not about having a discourse, it's about shutting down meetings, it's about being disruptive. and that's outside the a
million people in north america expect from us, so that's what we will do. thank you very much. >> thank you. speaking foreign language ] >> translator: president obama, there are certain questions about violation of human rights here in mexico and all of these problems, fighting drug trafficking, are you going to certify mexico? and how can we move forward with the initiative? we've also been concerned about any attempt against felipe calderon's life. we know about certain threats and insecurity that prevails. this, of course, is certainly related to your country. we're concerned about the visa problem too, but what comments would you have regarding all these questions?
